Hannah Stockton is a PhD student at the University of Nottingham (UK) and is working on a project examining the impact of traumatic life experiences such as sexual abuse or assault on people's psychological health and well-being. She is particularly interested in the experiences of sexually victimised males, and is keen to represent them in a research area that has traditionally focused virtually exclusively on the experiences of women.
She is currently running an online questionnaire examining potential factors that may both impede and facilitate recovery from such experiences, with a long term view to understanding how best to work with people who have experienced traumatic life events such as sexual violence. She is looking for people who would be willing to participate in her research by completing the questionnaire, which asks about the impact of a distressing or traumatic experience on the way you feel about yourself, your life and how your life may have changed following this event. The study is completely anonymous and strictly confidential. You have the option to exit the study at any time, and once you have started you are not obliged to continue if you do not want to.
